I enjoyed the article, Austin, thank you. As many others have mentioned the “leftist elite” comment is probably coming from the growing fact that the American left is growing close to the European right. I am a straight down the middle liberal and possibly a bit of an elitist following in the thought that it is better to be governed by a smart person with high ideals than a stupid person with none (if we are lucky). I did hit the “wee” heart and have started following you, so you can tell that even if I disagreed in a minor way, I appreciated the post and it’s contents.
